Finished in Andorite Grey Metallic over a Black/Anthracite leather interior, this 2008 Mercedes-Benz S550 4MATIC features the Night View Assist system, a panoramic sunroof, 19” AMG wheels, the AMG Styling Package, and more. This S550 is now being offered for auction by its seller out of New York showing under 97k miles on the odometer.

Finished in Andorite Grey Metallic, this S550 is equipped with the optional AMG Styling Package which includes a more aggressive front fascia and side skirts. It rides on 19” 5-spoke AMG wheels wrapped in Michelin tires showing from 2022. Standard equipment includes chrome trim, badging, and dual exhaust finishers. The seller notes a scrape on the rear bumper, a couple of dings, and a slight bend in the passenger fender. Detailed images are provided in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report.

Inside, this W221 is upholstered in Black and Anthracite leather with Burred Walnut wood veneers. It features front seat heating, ventilation, and dynamic power adjustability in addition to driver position memory that extends to the steering column and mirrors. The optional Night View Assist system is equipped in addition to a panoramic roof system. Other amenities include a power-closing system, parking guidance system, rearview camera, electric rear sun blinds, a heated steering wheel, a premium sound system, and COMAND infotainment system with navigation. The seller notes a small tear in the passenger seat.

The S550 is powered by a 5.5-liter V8 that produces up to 382 HP and 391 lb.-ft. of torque sent to all four wheels by way of a 7-speed automatic transmission. The CARFAX report shows 38 service history records and the seller states the brake pads and rotors have been recently replaced along with the front air suspension components. The seller notes that the power steering pump makes a whining noise.

This sale will include the owner’s manuals, a spare tire, some documentation, and a clean title.

The seller would like you to know: “Welcome to my auction for my S550! I am selling this car because I bought an older S430 and don't have the space for two. This car has been great for getting around town and for going on weekend trips. I wish the best to the highest bidder and happy holidays to all!”

    @Firewood yeah for peace of mind best to just address it never got to me though for some reason

  • Firewood (registered bidder) 4 monthsago

    @Adam I agree, the engine sounds excellent. But that whirring noise is indeed annoying. Not a deal killer, by any means, just surprised you didn't get it fixed miles ago. I'd need to get that sorted right off, or it'd drive me crazy.

  • Petroli (seller) 4 monthsago

    @Firewood yes it is that's why I wanted to do the driving video and it was a little spirited of a drive but I also wanted people to hear the engine and how it pulls - its fast and a great highway car

  • Firewood (registered bidder) 4 monthsago

    @Adam Good job on the driving video. Nice north shore roads too, reminds me of my old Lloyd Neck house, across the bay from you. Is the high whistling noise the whirring of the power steering unit that you talked about? Thanks.

  • Petroli (seller) 4 monthsago

    Just added a driving video!

  • Petroli (seller) 4 monthsago

    @Firewood I just added a photo of the pano from the inside and from aerial perspective thank you! Driving video to be added shortly too.

    Car looks immaculate! Could you grab an up close photo of the passenger rear bumper scrape? Thanks!

  • Petroli (seller) 4 monthsago

    Update: I just uploaded the receipt for the passenger rear strut. And Lynmor said the driver side rear looks dry (which is good he said).

    @Adam Info is much appreciated! Really a great looking ride in this color combo.

  • Petroli (seller) 4 monthsago

    @Firewood Hi please see my latest updates to answer your question thank you! and good luck!

  • Petroli (seller) 4 monthsago

    Update: Lynmor says "The power steering pump isn't leaking and works its just making whining noise". This isn't something that has been new to me - its been like this since I have owned it so if you want to get it replaced that is up to you the part is estimated to be around $500.

  • Petroli (seller) 4 monthsago

    Update: Lynmor has fixed the Pass side rear strut (approx $1100 and will upload receipt tonight when I pay it).I am getting a quote for the power steering "whining". Stay tuned.

  • Petroli (seller) 4 monthsago

    @Firewood I will call Lynmor at 9 and get back to you when I have a better idea with their insights !

  • Petroli (seller) 4 monthsago

    @Firewood Thank you! It is very clean! I will ensure the pics of the pano are added tomorrow by EOA - it looks sweet especially the dark top contrast to the silver !

  • Firewood (registered bidder) 4 monthsago

    Btw, did you get a quote or estimate to fix the power steering pump? Or to replace it? Anyone have an idea of what that might cost?

  • Firewood (registered bidder) 4 monthsago

    Sweet color. Looks in nice shape. Can you add a pic or two of the panoramic glass roof? Thanks.

  • Petroli (seller) 4 monthsago

    @Benzfan80 HI thank you for asking - it is currently at Lynmor in Huntington having the passenger side rear strut replaced - you may take a look at it however I don't allow test drives for many reasons.

  • Petroli (seller) 4 monthsago

    @Benzfan80 It may need a new pump - I recently had a belt replaced however best to just replace the pump in advance - it hasn't been an issue it just makes a noise. I will ask my mechanic today.

  • Benzfan80 (registered bidder) 4 monthsago

    Is the car available for drive test tomorrow afternoon? I’m close by Oyster Bay.

  • Benzfan80 (registered bidder) 4 monthsago

    Could you describe the power steering noise/issue in more detail? What’s causing it? Does it need a new pump?

  • Petroli (seller) 4 monthsago

    Hi All - just wanted to let you know I am having our local shop (Lynmor Motorsports in Huntington NY) replace the RR strut as it was leaking - you will now have a sorted air suspension (I recently replaced both fronts) - the LR is the only one not recently done - however - I have heard its rarer for the Rears to leak. I will post the receipt when I have it either today or tomorrow. thank you!
